Robin Williams R.I.P.

Recommended Posts

I am saddened to report that Robin Williams died today, apparently at his own hand. He was such a tremendous talent, and I've been watching and enjoying him perform since his television days in the 70's. He was as gifted a dramatic actor as he was a comedian, IMO, and his loss is devastating.

May he rest in peace.

This was very very sad news for me as well. He's always been one of my favorites. I've loved almost every thing he's done (shy of toys and Cadillac Man). I remember standing outside the Local Theatre (3 theaters back then) the line all the way around the back of the building for the Opening of "Popeye". I still have a poster for that.

An amazing actor, and a great loss!

I was a big fan of both his comedies and his dramas. Great actor and man. I will miss him.

Pure comic genius, I cannot imagine what it was like inside his head. He is missed!

This is yet again a reminder of our major work on this site. Robin was not Trans* to my knowledge, in spite of Mrs. Doubtfire, but his death is affecting our community, and yes my personal church community as well since Robin was one of my coreligionists of note. We never really know the weight on another person's mind and heart, and darkness that keeps us from seeing what we mean to others and what we have actually done in life is the worst of all.

Not only did he do Mrs. Doubtfire, but he and Gene Hackman also starred in The Birdcage along with I can't think pf his name. I also enjoyed RV, it was just a silly comedy but still funny as all get out.

RIP Robin and fly with the Angels,my brother

I think my favorite roles of his was as Dr. Sayer in "Awakenings," Dr. Maguire in "Good Will Hunting", and of course, Alladin.

I have the memory of all the laughter and all the tears.

Robin was a great comedian and actor. My wife, son and myself had the honor to meet him one time while he was filming RV in southern Alberta. Having lived in an area for a while that had lots of actors and actresses vacationing I treated him like another human of his statue; with a simple nod of the head. I had also just got off of work and hadn't been given a chance to wash first either.

May he rest in peace now after suffering from depression.

Yes his loss is devastating, it just goes to show you how the mind works, it is very powerful. Thats why we as cross dresser's and transgender, and men and women who want to be different,(can't think of a better way to say it), have to be very careful. I remember when I was an active alcoholic, I would come home drunk and sit in the basement and cry. And ask god why he didn't take me, as I didn't have the courage to do it myself. Slowly as a I started to get sober, I realized my mind and the alcohol were playing tricks on m, so the mind is very powerful. To those who might be contemplating this action, remember there's a lot of help out there, just waiting, and of course Laura's playground is also here to hel. In this fellowship or group, there are a lot of very smart people, who might have been through this. To all, have a great day and love and hugs Sweet Charlene

This was very sad news indeed. May his soul and spirit be at peace. And may his demons be gone.

He gave us so many wonderful things. While I loved all of his work I think his more serious ones were his best. "Dead Poet Society" had a great effect on me.

I posted this on my Facebook, quoting someone else, because he said it so well. And no, I do not know Michael Evans nor is he a public person, just someone else out there who feels this loss.

"I know a lot of people are dismissing another celebrity death; that their life meant nothing to you. For some, Robin was our first true role model. A blue cartoon genie that taught us the difference between right and wrong, and that being yourself was all you needed to be. A father should and would do anything to be with his children, including dressing in drag, or even going back to Neverland to rescue them from pirates. An English teacher can be more than just a giver of grades. A blunt therapist can teach you how to love your wife for a lifetime. A doctor that shows us that laughter is what we all truly need in life.


This has crossed the line as just another celebrity death. This man made us laugh when we thought we couldn't. He made us learn when we thought we knew enough. He has inspired in most to be better than we already were. Peter Pan has now passed, but we can't forget to find our happy thought and hold on to it." --- Michael Evans

      I think it's finding what suits you best. I have never got on with boyshorts at all. Not being over there, I won't go into brands but, in general, I have found quality panties better. Obviously womenswear is only designed to cover a small bulge so tucking is really essential.   I tend to wear bikini, hi-leg or full brief dependant on situation, how I am feeling or what I am wearing.   Tracy

      Thanks Charlize and everyone. I’ve done two days. The medication helps a lot.
    • mini
      thank all of you  for the splendid advice    
    • mini
      hello   i appreciate the advice as i was having a terrible time tucking and staying in place especially walking they were always slipping out or never in proper place.  I will be taking the tips and trying them out in the morning . I was afraid to try tape as hair would be pulled out. I will be trying the pull from behind and panty method as well as other great advice.    I do have one other question and that is going to gym as i am not allowed to use the other gym so how do i get used to being comfortable in those situations.

      I am not really sure where this is headed just now, but it does underscore the need for understanding of what and who Trans people are.  The mythology and the fantasy about us needs to be fully bashed out of some heads and replaced with better stuff.

      One of my psychology professors years ago liked to tell us that most M.D.s did not fully earn the Doctor part of their degrees, and they really should get a degree of Body Mechanic (BM) and I think he may have had it right in this case.  The guy knows the physical configuration of the human brain expertly as a technician but his ability to actually reason with his own brain on non technical matters is up for conjecture.

      Greetings Markjvp.  Your intro was fine.  Telling our family, especially at a young age is fraught with peril so I can relate to your story.  I am guessing you are about 16 so you still have some time to go before you graduate High School and can move out on your own, or go to college.  I know the time seems long, but in reality it's not.  Focus on your education as it will sustain you for the rest of your life.     As to starting transition, if that is your goal, a couple years will not make a huge difference.  You want to remain at home where you have a roof over your head and meals to eat.  Don't do anything rash.  Your family may or may not ever get "fixed" as this is their choice to understand.  Your choice is to be the best you that you can be.  Look around there are other stories like yours here.     Cheers, Jani
    • Jani
      This is so good to read that you have found the way to sobriety that suits you.  You have so much to be happy and grateful for, especially for the inner strength you posses.  Yeah for you!  You will get over your shyness and insecurity in due time.  I believe in you.  Your sponsor sounds like a caring person.     Hugs, Jani
